Overview

Ben Roethlisberger has seen his share of ups and downs. "Big Ben" was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004. After assuming the starting role in game three of his rookie season, he led the Steelers all the way to the AFC Championship game. Ben Roethlisberger card collectors have chased him ever since.

Although he was unable to win the big prize as a rookie, Roethlisberger brought Super Bowl victories back to Pittsburgh in 2005 and 2008. The team came up short to the Packers in the 2010 Super Bowl. Inconsistency followed in the ensuing seasons, with the Steelers not even making the playoffs in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2013.

After an slow start to the 2014 season, Roethlisberger exploded for 12 touchdown passes in a two-week period. This marked an NFL record as he was the first player to ever thrown six touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.

Despite his success, off-field issues added drama to the team chemistry and Roethlisberger's career. A motorcycle accident in 2006 almost took his life. In 2009 and 2010, allegations of sexual assault were levied against the star quarterback. Although he was never even formally charged, let alone convicted, Roethlisberger was suspended by the league for the first six games of the 2010 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. In spite of these negatives, Ben Roethlisberger card collectors have remained loyal based on his winning ways and gritty play.

Ben Roethlisberger has nearly 50 rookie cards that will appeal to all budgets.

2004 SP Authentic Ben Roethlisberger RC #213 Autographed Jersey #/299

The 2004 SP Authentic Ben Roethlisberger card features an on-card autograph and jersey piece. One thing that immediately becomes clear is that Roethlisberger has a very sloppy signature. Regardless, this is one of the top rookie cards for collectors.

2004 Bowman Chrome Ben Roethlisberger RC #111 Autograph #/199

Bowman Chrome has a distinct design and finish. The Ben Roethlisberger card features an on-card autograph and low print run of just 199 copies. Although it does not have a jersey piece, the timeless design ensures that the card will remain a collector favorite.

2004 Playoff Contenders Ben Roethlisberger RC #106 Autograph

Despite the relatively high high print run (it's not numbered, but confirmed as 541) and sticker autograph, Playoff Contenders has long been a top option for rookie collectors. The 2004 Contenders Ben Roethlisberger card continues to be one of the most heavily purchased.
